Repeater 5-4-3 Rule

The 5-4-3 rule helps network administrators remember how many repeaters they can use in their network without violating the maximum delay limit, which can increase the number of late collisions.

The repeater rule states that when extending LAN segments, you can only connect five network segments end-to-end using four repeaters. However only three of those segments can have hosts attached to them.
